  • Through tragedy, Blue finds happiness

    This genre was not my usual reading material. As the story progressed, we met Blue, her family and friends, her enemies, and the new boy. There were a lot of issues encountered through the telling of Blue's life, some were hard to deal with, some were how to cope with situations, and some brought tears to my eyes. For me, I felt some moments were dragged out a bit too long, but overall, this is a book that I would recommend. I received a copy of this story through Xpresso Tours, and this is my unsolicited review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • My favorite read of 2021 so far! Loved the charact

    This may be my favorite read of 2021. High school junior, Blue, is as blue as her name. Her older brother, Jack, recklessly drove after a party and was involved in an accident that killed a man. A man with a wife and three children. The man may or may not have been partially to blame, but he’s dead. Though Jack was under the legal limit, he was also underage and drinking. Blue’s life is forever altered, but so is Maya’s, the daughter of the man killed, who also happens to go to Blue’s private school. Maya blames Blue for the loss of her father, even though Blue had nothing to do with the accident. The bullying at school as a result of Maya and her possy of friends is unrelenting, but as with everything, there are always two sides to every story. After Blue and Maya get into a classroom altercation, they’re stuck in detention together where the school counselor is determined for them to learn how to co-exist in the school, forcing them to work together on a school club. It goes anything but smoothly, but Blue and Maya learn that neither of them is who they assumed the other to be, and that everyone has secrets they don’t want the world to know. And that includes Blue’s new boyfriend, Devon, who is hiding something so horrible, she isn’t even sure she wants to know what it is. Plot The story centers around Blue and Maya’s relationship. The way Maya treats Blue early on, I was hoping she wouldn’t get a redemption arc, but by the time I got halfway in, I was rooting for it. The author does an amazing job of creating sympathetic, yet flawed characters that pull at you. Blue may live in a big house and have lots of money, but she discovers her life isn’t so different from Maya’s after all. A strong subplot is her relationship with Devon, and it may go down in history as one of my favorite teen romances. The Characters All the characters are amazing. I loved Blue and Devon from the very first scene. Neither is perfect, but they’re so easy to adore. Maya grew on me. She’s got a massive chip on her shoulder, but for good reason. She deals with racism, classism, and dark family secrets in addition to losing her father. She makes it hard to love her, but she still manages to dig her way into my heart through amazing character development and writing by the author. Top Five Things I Loved About BLUE 1. Blue. She’s perfectly imperfect. She’s kind, but she still makes assumptions about other people. Her heart’s in the right place, but she still manages to say the wrong thing far too many times. She realizes she lives a life a lot of other kids don’t, but she still takes much of it for granted. 2. Devon. The boy with the dark secret who still manages to be so upbeat most of the time is my soulmate. 3. Maya. The life she’s lived, the secrets she keeps, the burdens she carries all shape who she is, and as I got to know her, my animosity toward her melted away and I just wanted to hug her. 4. Secrets. The secrets everyone carries slowly unfold at just the right pace to keep me turning the pages. 5. Plot. I absolutely loved the plot. The author did a masterful job of making me feel all the feels, even when I didn’t want to. Bottom Line My favorite read of 2021 so far! Loved the characters, the story, the writing, everything! Disclaimer I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
